Asexual, all-female termite colonies found to do just fine without males

Researchers have now found colonies with no male termites at all, and they seem to be thriving...

The ASUS ROG Strix B360-G Gaming Review: A Polarizing $100 Motherboard Design
The B360 market should be a battleground for new PC builds: it offers almost all the features needed for everyone. There is a lot of scope for motherboard manufacturers to be creative in this space, and still offer a reasonably priced product: ASUS' take here is the Strix B360-G Gaming, a microATX offering that dives deep into the ROG Strix branding. For users looking to build a single-GPU gaming system, ASUS thinks they have a board you should be looking at.Zhaoxin Displays x86-Compatible KaiXian KX-6000: 8 Cores, 3 GHz, 16 nm FinFET
Zhaoxin, a joint venture between Via Technologies and the Chinese government, this week for the first time displayed its upcoming x86-compatible CPU, the KaiXian KX-6000. The SoC features eight cores running at 3 GHz and increases performance over its predecessor by at least 50%.
The KaiXian KX-6000 is a successor to the KX-5000 CPU launched earlier this year. Both chips integrate eight-core x86-64 cores with 8 MB of L2 cache, a DirectX 11.1-capable iGPU with an up-to-date display controller, a dual-channel DDR4-3200 memory controller, contemporary I/O interfaces (PCIe, SATA, USB, etc), and so on.

Acer has quietly introduced two new curved gaming monitors that offer premium gaming features such as 144 Hz FreeSync and HDR10 support for relatively affordable prices. Acer’s XZ1-series LCDs share design elements with the company’s aggressively-styled Predator displays and will definitely appeal to those looking for inexpensive monitors with serious gaming capabilities.
Acer’s XZ1 family currently consists of two displays: the 27-inch XZ271Ubmijpphzx (XZ271U) and the 31.5-inch XZ321QUbmijpphzx (XZ321QU). Both monitors are based on 16:9 aspect ratio curved VA-type panels featuring a 2560×1440 resolution, 250 - 300-nits brightness, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, 1 ms MPRT response times, and a 144 Hz refresh rate.

Kingston's HyperX gaming brand is introducing their first SSD with adjustable RGB LED lighting. The LEDs add significantly to the price tag, but internally it's a mid-range SATA SSD. This lighting-first and SSD-second design pays off with no fewer than 75 RGB LEDs to illuminate the drive and surrounding components, but from our performance benchmarks it's clear that Kingston had to make some real sacrifices on the SSD side to bring this drive together.AMD’s Athlon 200GE Processors Now Available
AMD this week started selling its entry-level Athlon 200GE APUs designed for the most affordable PCs.

It also has a 35 W TDP and is therefore compatible with virtually all AM4 motherboards and cooling systems.
The AMD Athlon 200GE carries two SMT-enabled Zen cores running at 3.2 GHz frequency, a Radeon iGPU featuring 192 stream processors operating at 1 GHz, 1 MB L2 cache, 4 MB L3 cache, a dual-channel DDR4-2667 memory controller, and so on. The APU can power affordable PCs that do not need a lot of compute horsepower and enables AMD to compete against Intel’s entry-level Celeron and Pentium...ASUS Unveils ROG Ryujin AIO LCSes for AMD’s Ryzen & Ryzen Threadripper

vivo V11 arrives in India with Helio P60
vivo introduced a new addition to its selfie-centric V series in the beginning of September called vivo V11. It arrived a day later in India as the V11 Pro, but even if it had a new name, it remained the very same midranger with a fingerprint scanner underneath the AMOLED panel. Now the Indian market is receiving a different vivo V11 with Helio P60 chipset and a physical fingerprint scanner on the back that was previously known as vivo V11i in numerous other markets.

The phone has a 6.26" screen with 19:9 aspect ratio (1080p+ resolution). It is indeed powered by the Snapdragon 636 chipset as rumors predicted, but this particular model has the modest 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. It runs MIUI 9.6 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

However, the iPhone XS Max has now dethroned it offering even more impressive image quality. The review says that Apple's latest phone sets or matches a few records. The most important ones are the absolute color accuracy, highest full-screen brightness, screen reflectivity and brightness variation with viewing angle. The absolute color accuracy, for example, is so high that it's visually indistinguishable from perfect, while the full-screen...Huawei Nova 3i is now available in Red
Huawei announced the nova 3i back in July as a pioneer for the new midrange chipset Kirin 710.

Netflix's 'Maniac' has a surprisingly simple message at its core
Maniac looked like it was going to be A Lot. The first trailer for the Netflix original made it seem like a Black Mirror–style technological dreamscape, with dubious medical practice and high fantasy sequences woven together in the kind of narrative that spins off dozens of thinkpieces with headlines like “What Is Even Going On In Maniac” and “The Maniac Finale, Explained.”
It’s not one of those shows at all.

Google, Facebook and other sites that host news content on their platforms should pay an annual tax to fund journalism in the UK. This is the stance of the News Media Association, the British newspaper industry's trade body which represents most of the UK media.
The organization's proposal to the UK government comes as the British newspaper industry shrunk from £6.8 billion ($8.94 billion) to £3.6 billion ($4.73 billion) from 2007 to 2017, the Guardian reported Tuesday.

Like a baby learning how to walk and talk, the Apple Watch can finally stand on its own two feet and proudly say "Look world, I’ve arrived!"
In hindsight, it’s clear Apple at first didn’t know what it wanted the Apple Watch to be. Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the smartwatch as "the next chapter in Apple’s story" at the tail end of its iPhone 6 event in 2014, and at first it seemed like the Apple Watch would be a tiny iPhone for your wrist.

The BBC has used a series of GIFs, videos, and images to break down its investigation into a video of two women and two children being shot by soldiers.

In a detailed Twitter thread posted on Monday, BBC News Africa explained how journalists used a combination of sources, geographical clues, and online detective work to establish where the footage was filmed, when the killings took place, and who was involved.
